    Said in another thread - honeycomb has a place at Tech. But it needs to be subtle. Unis were terrible. Helmets weren’t as bad but weren’t good. Needs to be used in a similar way to the Yellow Jacket pattern on the numbers of our current jerseys. Don’t notice it from the TV/stands buts it’s a cool background touch when you get up close.

    It was never a honeycomb helmet. It was a chicken wire helmet, and I couldn't be happier knowing I'll never see them again. They were equally as awful as the bubble wrap in the numbers.

    The Adidas jerseys, on the other hand, are pure ecstasy.

    I liked the helmets, but prefer the solid white from last year. The honeycomb unis were a travesty.

    The helmet honeycomb wasn't really that visible from the stands.

    It looked like I needed to stuff pomp in them to make a homecoming display at 2am.

    He was on 3 man front (Football Podcast) and said they are dead, meaning never to be seen again.
    He also said that we would wear 6 different jersey this year, but would stick to the Gold (helmet), White (top), Gold(pants) combination most of the time.

    My guess is:

    White/Blue numbers
    White/Gold numbers
    Gold/White numbers
    Gold/Blue numbers
    Blue/Gold numbers
    Blue/White numbers

    One of those may be a throwback style jersey.

    Bringing back the "chicken wire" look in the new era makes no sense!! The TO era is dead and gone!!

    I'm not sure whether Dan Radakovich #%&@ed us over more by telling CPJ about the NCAA investigation and getting us sanctioned before leaving for Clemson, or by renewing the Russell deal for 5 years just before leaving for Clemson. It's almost like he knew he would be leaving for Clemson.

    As a famous philosopher once said, "If you look good, you feel good. If you feel good, you play good. If you play good, they pay good."

    I think that was Deion. I swear I saw that somewhere.
